SYLLABUS FOR THE PHYSICIAN LICENSUE EXAMINATION
The syllabus is essentially a listing of all topics which may be the basis for formulating questions in the subjects indicated. The preparation took sometime aswe requested the different medical schools to submit to the board their syllabi. Theboard reviewed this and had a syllabi prepared and sent to the Association of thePhilippine Medical Colleges, Inc. (APMC) for comments. The current syllabi is anintegration of all these efforts.We want to emphasize that the listing of topics do not reflect the relativeimportance or frequency of questions in these areas. Neither is it intended toinfluence the different schools to change their curriculum. The licensureexaminations require achievement of standard terminal competencies andinstructional objectives which should guide the medical educational process,whether traditional or the Problem Based Learning (PBL) in form.To the extent possible comments coming from the different medical schoolswill be given due course when these are reasonable or significant. Effort isexpanded so that the bio-medical science can be applied to actual clinicalabnormalities or disorders so that at least some of the items are case basedproblem-solving in nature. To the extent possible, disease process which areencountered locally or the understanding of which is of particular importance inillustrating fundamental biological mechanism will be given due prominence. Thereis no intention to make all questions “must know”. We have shifted to the criterionreferenced grading from the previous norm criterion reference system. We utilizedthe Nedelsky Method of Setting the Minimum Passing Level (MPL) per item andcompute from thereon the MPL of the subject.The Board acknowledge receipt of the Pediatric Undergraduate Curriculumas prepared by a special committee of the Philippine Pediatric Society. This is alandmark project and the Board member assigned to this subject will have theopportunity to review this for possible inclusion in the syllabi.
